Frequency of Ciliary Beat measured with a Photo-sensitive Cell

  title={Frequency of Ciliary Beat measured with a Photo-sensitive Cell},
  author={Tore Dalhamn and Ragnar Rylander},
A REVIEW of the present knowledge of cilia has been made by Rivera1. Various methods have been used for estimating the frequency and testing the effects of different substances on ciliary beat. A common method has been to drop particles such as coal and seed on ciliated epithelium and to count the time required for the particle to travel a certain distance2. This method gives a rough value for the speed of the cilia, but other factors such as viscosity and thickness of the mucous layer… CONTINUE READING
